A coterminal student is subject to graduate tuition assessment and adjustment policies once graduate standing is reached. Coterminal students should see the student policies and procedures for tuition assessment, as described under "Residency and Unit Requirements in Coterminal Programs" in the "Graduate Degrees" section of this bulletin.

Eligibility for registration at reduced tuition rates is described below. Tuition exceptions may also be made for illness, disability, pregnancy, new-parent relief, or other instances at the discretion of the University. No reduction in tuition charges is made after the first two weeks of the quarter.

All students are advised, before registering at less than the regular full-tuition rate, to consider the effects of that registration on their degree progress and on their eligibility for financial aid and awards, visas, deferment of student loans, and residency requirements.

The University reserves the right to change at any time, without prior notice, tuition, room fees, board fees, or other charges.
